We all know the effects that climate change and global warming are having on our planet - but what we don't all know is some of the bizarre ways scientists are working to find practical and imaginative answers to these big problems. Expore futuristic inventions and how they could fit into everyday life: from brushing your teeth with biodegradable algae, to eating beetle burgers for lunch and coming home to do your homework with a pen containing ink made from exhaust fumes.
